I am a fifth year PhD student in Computer Science at Harvard University where I am advised by Yaron Singer.

My research interests include machine learning, optimization, algorithms, and mechanism design. My publications can be found here.

I am supported by a Google PhD Fellowship.

I interned at Google research NYC in the modeling and data science group in 2016 and in the algorithms group in 2017. Before coming to Harvard, I was an undergraduate student at Carnegie Mellon University where I graduated in 2014.
